Course Description:

Dr. Daniel van Ingen passionately believes no one should suffer from anxiety disorders.

With that goal in mind, he has dedicated his life to helping people become unafraid. His teachings on anxiety tolerance training are based on the Three R’s … Relax your body, Reframe your thinking, and Resolve your fears. Anxiety expert, author and national speaker Dr. Daniel van Ingen’s treatment is based on the latest innovations using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based Acceptance and Commitment (ACT), Meta-Cognitive Therapy, and the latest research on positive psychology.

Anxiety disorders can be effectively treated with non-medication strategies. Free your client from fear, anxiety and panic by introducing cognitive-behavioral strategies into your practice that really work. You will learn specialized techniques to treat Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, panic, social anxiety, and trauma-based anxiety. Walk away with effective evidence-based strategies such as evidence separation, time machine technique, sense and emotional rehearsal, and defensive defective attacks.
  1. Describe the “Three R’s” and how that model encourages, and motivates your clients to increase their anxiety tolerance.
  2. Summarize essential clinical assessment features such as safety-seeking behavior and negative reinforcement.
  3. Implement practical strategies for overcoming social anxiety disorder.
  4. Utilize precise response prevention techniques for overpowering OCD.
  5. Apply matching & exposure interventions for trauma-based anxiety.
  6. Explain the latest innovations in CBT, mindfulness-based ACT, Meta-Cognitive therapy & strategic integration with positive psychology.
